Prey Will Bring You More Aliens To Slaughter On May 5

I’m always up for a good sci-fi FPS, but can someone tell me if this has anything to do with the original Prey at all? That was a long time ago; all I remember is being a Native American dude who was upside down a lot and had a girlfriend who gets killed by aliensآ—and this kind of looks like a far cry from that. Heck, the pre-order image actually gives me a BioShock vibe (I must have played too much of that if anyone in a bubble-like helmet makes me think of a Big Daddy).

Bethesda Softworks announced Prey will debut on May 5 on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and the Windows PC. Bethesda, a division of ZeniMax Media, said that the next game from Arkane Studios will feature sci-fi combat aboard Talos I, an immense space station orbiting the moon in the year 2032. As main character Morgan Yu (yes, an Asian American character), you are the subject of an experiment that was supposed to alter humanity forever. But it has gone terribly wrong. The space station has been overrun by hostile aliens (who look like dark smoke rings), and they are now hunting you. As you dig into the dark secrets of Talos I and your own past, you must survive using the tools found on the station, your wits, weapons, and mind-bending abilities to defeat the Typhon alien threat.
